Theistic Evolution is nothing but compromise with the world

I've settled down a lot in the last few weeks. I no longer feel a need to answer the outrageous claims of evolutionists or anything else that comes at me from this world that contradicts God's word. I quietly know they are wrong, that God is in charge, and no matter what names they call me I'm content with the Biblical revelation. It is the power of God unto salvation for everyone who believes.

Got this in the mail recently, an article on the folly of Theistic Evolution showing it to be just another sad compromise with the world some Christians fall into:

The folly of Theistic Evolution preachers is that in following such heretical teaching, the adherents are preaching against the authority of the Bible. Either the Bible is the Word of God or it is not. The Bible is clear in the Genesis account of creation that God created the heavens and the earth. "In the beginning God created" is an absolute proclamation of who it was that created all (Gen 1:1). This is an account given that makes a dogmatic point that God created everything in six days. The Bible says that God formed Adam from the dust of the earth and Eve from Adam's rib. God breathed life into them after forming man in the image of God (Gen 1:26). God did not form man as primordial slime and set it on a course to develop into man. God made man and all the animals in six days, not 4 billion years. To say otherwise is to say that the Genesis account is not accurate. What many of these Theistic Evolutionists say is that we can't take the creation account literally.

If that is true that why should we take the Biblical account of the resurrection literally? How about the necessity of being born again by the regeneration of the Holy Ghost literally? How about the literal belief that Jesus is the way the truth and the life, and that no man comes to the Father but by Him? How about the literal virgin birth? Should we really believe that Mary was with child by the Holy Ghost?...One could find a way very easily to spiritualize these points into symbols and make them say whatever they want to.

The entire Soteriological (doctrine of salvation) position of Christianity is based on the authority of the Bible. Once the Church allows itself to give in to secular pressure to change something as basic as creation, we destroy the authority of the Scripture and thus have no absolute ground to stand on in any Biblical Theology. One could twist them into a pretzel and make a good natural Devil pleasing argument for why it would be ridiculous to believe that Jesus is the only way to heaven…after all, are there not many other great religious figures who taught great moral lessons? In fact if the main goal is to get more people in the church by pleasing their human intellect, certainly one could twist any passage of Scripture by reducing it to a symbol of something else than what it is.

The Bible says"

1 Corinthians 2:14 "But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned."
